Outsourcing is no 'Silver Bullet'....

A reality check of many outsourcing relationships reveals that 25% of all outsourcing relationships fail within a 2 year period and over 50% of these relationships will fail within 5 years. Think if you would buy an automobile if the same statistic applied. Then, why do organizations continue to do so, over & over even after experiencing similar failures. Find out why these failures happen and how to avoid them...


Traditional Outsourcing of Information Technology (IT) Services, IT Enabled Services and Business Processes may be an attractive sourcing model if implemented correctly after taking an informed decision. Some of the questions to consider include:

  • Is Outsourcing (Onshore / Nearshore / Offshore ) the only option ?

  • What are some other options for cost reduction and profitability improvement?

  • Is Outsourcing going to help achieve long-term business goals of the organization?

  • Are we Outsourcing simply because our competitors are doing so? If so, why? If not, why?

  • What are the common pitfalls & risks to be aware of? How does one avoid these pitfalls and mitigate these risks?

  • What Sourcing Strategy or Model should be adopted? 

  • Which geographical location would work best for your business and your customers?

  • How does one obtain objective and unbiased advice?

  • How to select the right vendor/provider/supplier, if required? 

  • Can one trust a vendorís recommendations? 

  • How does one identify the ideal project(s) or processes to outsource/optimize?

  • How will performance and ongoing success be measured?
